White and Williams Associates Honored at Philadelphia Bar YLD Annual Meeting
It was a big night for associates Vince Barbera and Jason Poore at the Philadelphia Bar Association Young Lawyers Division's Holiday Party and Annual Meeting.
Vince was officially introduced as 2018 Chair. His one-year term will begin on January 1, 2018. In addition to his YLD service, Vince is a member of the Board of Governors of the Justinian Society and provides pro bono legal services through Philadelphia VIP and Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
Jason received the F. Sean Peretta Service Award for his work with Youth Courts. The award is given annually to an individual who has devoted substantial time to an innovative or non-traditional program that serves the community. Jason is the Chair of the Youth Court Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, a committee he started about two years ago. A Youth Court is an in-school student run disciplinary system where students administer restorative justice to their peers who commit minor infractions that usually result in suspension. Jason was also elected to the Executive Committee of the YLD.
We commend Vince and Jason for their service to the YLD, and the Philadelphia legal community, and congratulate them on their accomplishments!
